Yet Another Set Of Right-Wing Legends Debunked
In the name of debunking the slanders that are still being hurled against Michael Schiavo, Judge Greer has ordered Jeb Bush's Department of Children and Families, the Florida state agency that oversaw Terri Schiavo's medical care, to open up all of its records on the Terri Schiavo case. Guess what? Every single claim of "abuse" made by the Schindlers or their allies has been refuted. Period.
The Schindlers made eight complaints to DCF starting in 2001, with each one containing multiple allegations of abuse and neglect. But agency said it found no evidence that Michael Schiavo abused, neglected or exploited his wife. "During the time Mrs. Schiavo has been a patient of hospice [Hospice House Woodside in Pinellas Park], the spouse has always been courteous and very compassionate towards his wife. He is rarely alone with her when he visits and he has never compromised her care," the DCF said.This won't shut up the hardcore idiots or the truly dishonest, but it should serve to convince everyone else.
